GIVING THE ROBOT

A SMART EYE

Imagine the scenario: a robot diligently moves an arc torch from point A to point B. So far, so good.

But what if there are part tolerances or heat distortion scattered between A and B? The robot, ignorant to these variations, persists in welding along its pre-programmed path. The result? Welding seams that lack precision, potentially falling short of quality standards.

But fear not, for there's a solution: introducing the watchful eye of the Metrolux sensors. These sensors are mounted at the torch and can detect the exact joint position straight ahead of the process. Steadily communicating, the sensor instructs the robot how to adapt its path accordingly.

Sounds easy? It is.

WE MAKE AUTOMATION WORK

Sensors for welding, brazing, adhesive bonding

Finding

Positioning the tool center point (TCP) at beginning, end or specific points of the joints by detecting the workpiece´s edge.

Tracking

Detection of part tolerances for real time correcting of the robot´s path during the running joining process.

Inspecting

Analyzing the seam quality after the welding process, detecting and measuring defects and deviations.
